"I will beat you like a Cherokee drum!"
So this looks like a blast. Look, I think we all know what the Fast & Furious franchise is giving us these days. Ridiculous action, fast cars, beautiful women, an obsessive emphasis on family, and some truly insane stunts. The Fate of the Furious looks no different, but once again, they're upping the ante in a unique and bonkers way. Cars flying between buildings? Tanks on highways? All-out warfare in Los Angeles? Ha. That's nothing. In this trailer, we see multiple heist sequences, an endless barrage of bullets, cars destroyed by wrecking balls, a prison riot for the ages, and yes, submarines. This movie looks utterly insane. But I have to admit, I'm actually curious as to where the story is going this time around. The idea of Vin Diesel's Dom Toretto turning into a villain is an interesting one, and I love the dynamic of Jason Statham becoming a member of the main crew. The cast of actors is also mightily impressive, and Charlize Theron will be a fearsome antagonist. The Fast & Furious movies have grown into their own distinct, wacky genre, and there's no turning away from the formula in this trailer. What can I say? I'm excited for this dumb, crazy thing.
The Fate of the Furious will open on April 14, 2017.
